This image remains one of my most favourite Sailor Moon-related illustrations. The colours are so bright and vibrant, and a jet-black background like that is so bold and striking and not usually associated with magical girl series. It’s so powerful. V is a babe in every sense.
Edit: I really love Naoko’s illustrations of the girls in space. Magical girls are normally surrounded by/associated with sweet, gentle, pastel backgrounds. Even the Sailor Moon anime did this, with its beautiful, soft watercolour scenery. So to see them suddenly against an empty, pitch-black expanse of nothingness - it’s very powerful. The bright, minimalist features of their uniforms really stand out and make them seem so much larger than life.
